Velo Bleu: a nice way to get around

Nice Tramway

After many years of haggling, planning and construction, Nice's first tramway running north-south opened in November 2007. A second tram line running east-west is in the process of construction which explains the heavy machinery dotting Nice's landscape. Tram 2 is scheduled to open in 2018. More.

Nice Buses

Nice has a very good bus network, hampered only by infrequent service on Sundays and in off-hours. During the day however, the buses are fast and frequent, using special bus lanes to bypass Nice's notorious traffic. More.

Nice Taxis

To be avoided if at all possible. Taxi fares are the highest in continental France and dishonest drivers are legion. More.

Biking Nice

With the mild climate and a long, flat shoreline, biking in Nice is a pleasurable way to get around, not to mention great exercise. More.


Try to avoid driving around Nice if at all possible. The road network is a confusing, poorly signposted nest of one-way streets and illogical, meandering avenues. Also traffic is clogged in central Nice and parking is a nightmare. See a Nice road map.
